    Looks like the signal was weak when it was recorded.

    could possibly be EMI signal interference. make sure the VCR and all cables to and from the capture device are moved away from other electrical equipment such as your monitor, speakers, stereo, refrigerator, etc...

    you might also make a trip to wal-mart or radioshack and get some high quality sheilded composite cables.

    hmm, if its the cabling wouldnt this effect be prevalent in all of my captures??? I have successfully captured one VHS before this one without these lines...

    Get a better VCR, or try adjusting the heads (tracking).
